Sad times in Oregon as the Ohio State Buckeyes beat the University of Oregon Ducks in the championship game. I'm still proud of the great year we had. I don't subscribe to "winning is everything" or I'd have given up stamping long ago--LOL! Anyway, it means I lost the wager with my friend, Maria, so I owe her a little package & a card. I found the Stampin' Celebration Blog at the end of last year & wanted to play again. The sketch was just what I needed.
Pulled out my almost never used old Hero Arts wooden alphabet stamps & white embossed them on crimson cardstock. Hopefully this is close to the right crimson for OSU. Their other color is gray so I used more of the cardstock left from the card in my previous post & stamped the Studio G sentiment in Memento Gray Flannel. The MFT Fishtail Flags were splattered with white paint using a water brush--symbolizing confetti. Printed the picture of a football on photo paper, trimmed it out & mounted it with foam tape. I used a COPIC marker to color the little wooden embellishment which is attached over some twine.
Hope Maria enjoys my salute to Ohio State. The governors of the 2 states also had a wager with bigger gifts on the line, but doubt a handmade card is included--LOL! This card is going to Maria (& her hubby) & works for a guy so I'm entering the challenge at SSS Wednesday.Thanks for stopping by.
